Unlikely Scenario, but considering EK most likely wants out of OTT. what if.

Erik Karlsson to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Drew Doughty.

Maybe picks and prospects added in; maybe Rieder, Ladue + 2nd goes to Ottawa while Dzingel + Harpur go to LA. or something like that? I'd assume EK has more value than Doughty tho.

This is simply because finding a suitable trading partner for EK is hard. And finding a suitable trade for EK is also hard; if Ottawa is getting 'pieces' back, and not a 'star', they're losing the trade, plain and simple.

As for this, its simply that EK wants out of Ottawa, and Ottawa needs a completely fresh look, and Doughty could help with that,

For LA, after a couple years of failure, I would have to think they need a shakeup: losing to the Sharks, expansion Knights and not making the playoffs does such. Trading away their best player for an equal talent shakes the dynamic of the team, and may help to make LA a more offensive team, compared to the defensive style they played w Doughty.

And both players have 1 year term left, so that balances too.

I’m not sure If Doughty has any say in if he gets traded or not but there is 0% chance he will welcome a trade going to Ottawa. However if he doesn’t have any NMC well then sucks for him because i'm sure Kings take a good look if they can get EK.


2.) 15 Jun 2018 11:26:20
Even just doughty and a 2nd rounder for karlsson and a 4th rounder i could live with.

Mcjesus why wouldn't doughty want to come home to Canada? Pretty dumb comment.


3.) 15 Jun 2018 14:36:39
Because Ottawa is the worst Franchise in the nhl and belongs in the KHL.


4.) 15 Jun 2018 16:16:35
Why would Doughty not want to come to Ottawa? Are you that obtuse man?

The Senators are a raging dumpster fire at the moment. The owner is a cheapskate and consistently mettles in the operations to the detriment of the team. There are MULTIPLE scandals surrounding the team that are not going away anytime soon. The team is going to be hot garbgae next year and as it currently stands, will not have their own first round pick. They are the league's doormat.

Is Ottawa a nice place to live? Sure. Would any player looking for a chance to win in the near future want to play there? No. They are a joke.


5.) 15 Jun 2018 16:59:35
If MELNICK was as cheap Ryan wouldn't be making 7.25 right now and alfie and Heatley spezza wouldn't have gotten the contracts they did. that's just hear say. he's just a spoiled rich guy who acts like a fool and hired the wrong replacement for murray. Hoffman will likely be traded. Randy Lee if found guilty will be fired. drama gone.

They are far from worst team in league carolina has those rights atm.


6.) 15 Jun 2018 17:43:50
Lol um I’m not even going to answer why Doughty wouldn’t wanna play for Ottawa lol.


7.) 17 Jun 2018 15:14:05
He never said he wouodnt wanna come to Canada. He precised Ottawa. And i don't blame him I live in Ottawa and want out lol.


8.) 17 Jun 2018 22:53:07
When exactly did this happen colt66?

Because you don't have an answer mcbs.

Jared McCann + Alex Petrovic to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Calle Rosen + Adam Brooks + 2019 2nd Round Draft Pick + 2018 3rd Round Draft Pick.

Florida has a lot of centres (Trocheck, Barkov, Bjugstad, etc. ) and a surplus of defencemen as well, and can afford to ship off both McCann and Petrovic; Petrovic of which is probably worth no more than a 3rd, and McCann worth a 2nd. They get a 2nd for McCann, and also pick up a 3rd, plus some 'meh' prospects for Petrovic, and these assets can be flipped for a scoring winger as needed. Toronto gets their new 3C, who Dubas knows well, and a stable RHD.

Travis Hamonic (RD - 3.8 Million x 3 Years) + Sam Bennett (C - 1.8 Million x 1 Year) + Rasmus Andersson (RD - 755K x 2 Years) + 2018 3rd Round Draft Selection to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Kasperi Kapanen (RW - 925K X 1 Year) + Jake Gardiner (LD - 4.05 Million x 1 Year) + 2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#25 Overall)

Calgary then flips Gardiner.

Jake Gardiner (LD - 4.05 Million x 1 Year; Extension - 5.0 Million x 5 Years) + Curtis Lazar (C - 950K x 1 Year) to the New York Rangers in exchange for Vladislav Namestnikov (C - RFA; Extension - 3.75 Million x 3 Years) + Jimmy Vesey (RW - RFA; Extension - 2.5 Million x 3 Years) + 2018 3rd Round Draft Selection.

Basically.
Hamonic + Bennett + Andersson + Lazar + 3rd for Kapanen + Namestnikov + Vesey + 1st + 3rd

Calgary acquires three NHL ready RW’s, a position that they need to shore up drastically this year. They trade from a position of wealth (D; Giordano, Hamilton, Brodie, Kylington, Valimaki, Kulak. ) to shore up. The Hamonic experiment was less than a success in Calgary, and he might be the easiest pf Calgarys big four dmen to trade, apart from Brodie, who’d garner a lesser return. In addition to Hamonic, they deal away Bennett who needs a new scenery ASAP, Andersson, who is basically a 1for1 for Kapanen, where both teams upgrade positions of need, Lazar, who is right now a nothing, and a 3rd, which they make back from NY. They also relinquish their need for a 1st, and can draft a player in the first round as accordingly.
And btw, Calgary needs to make something happen this summer. Last season was a letdown and change is needed. One complication is the fact that Hamonic probably won’t be traded ASAP, however, it is possible.

Toronto acquires two RD, one of which is a shutdown man who can play with Rielly, despite coming off a down year, and the other is young and can compliment Dermott rather well. They trade away their second best dman, but upgrade due to the fact that they don’t need four offensive minded dman on the current roster, and deal away a LD, wherein Dermott and Rielly can eat up more minutes. They also trade away Kapanen, but with Brown, Nylander, Marner, etc on the wing, Kapanen is excess. It would be nice to trade Brown instead of Kapanen, but I think Kapanen will be the thing that makes the deal happen. Toronto also gets a 3C for next season, one with high potential that was simply never realized. can become a 30-35 point guy as a hometown kid.

NY acquires a dman that they badly need in exchange for two players who struggled last year, but both of which are solid middle 6/ top 6 wingers. Vladdy could be a star alongside Gaudreau/ Monahan, as he was with Stamkos/ Kucherov, he just struggled immensely in NY due to a lack of talent. Vesey is a 30-35 point utility guy, who could be useful in CGY, NY gets their dman, a guy from the USA who probably would love to play in MSG. he's a high risk high reward guy, but could prove valuable on an NY team with no firepower on the backend.

That is way too much to read, but quickly looking it over, NYR told their fans when they traded Nash, McDonough and miller that they’re going to rebuild and get younger. Now you have them taking on a Dman in Gardiner in his late 20s and losing skilled young forwards. After that I kinda stopped reading. Also a top 4 RHD like Hamonic could help the leafs, but losing a LHD from our top 4 just switches the problem for L to R without really improving. And I’m as hopeful for dermott as anyone, but he’s played a handful of NHL games and I’ve watched him all playoffs long for the marlies (5 games live) and he has looked like the best player on either team sometimes, and looked very average (like a 21 year old D should) at others times. The fact that fans are just assuming he’s going to easily replace Jake gardiners 25 min and 50 pts is insane.


2.) 11 Jun 2018 22:35:05
Good points Jim. Dermott has shown a lot of promise and potential but he's no sure thing yet. Lots of d-men look good in their first stint and then fail to really pan out (a la Luke Schenn) .


3.) 12 Jun 2018 06:45:13
Rangers won’t trade Vesey.

Jake Gardiner (D - 4.2 Million x 1 Year; Extension - 5.25 Million x 4 Years) + Jeremy Bracco (RW -ELC) + 2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#25) to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Matt Benning (D - RFA; Extension - 2.4 Million x 4 Years) + 2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#10).

- Edmonton upgrades bigtime on defence, and gets their true offensive dman, who, if played on the top PP unit, could be a perennial 50-60 point man as McDavid’s point man. He may be suspect defensively, but that's because he doesn’t have support on defence; Edmonton has Darnell Nurse that can compliment Gardiner’s ‘wild’ style well.
- Toronto downgrades in general in defence, but gets a dman of need: a more defensively sound dman. They upgrade in terms of picks, and thus, that pick can be traded for more defensive assets for the ‘now’.

2018 1st Round Draft Selection (#10 - From Edmonton) + Calvin Pickard (G - 1.0 Million x 1 Year) to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Jake Muzzin (D - 4.0 Million x 2 Years) .

- Los Angeles, despite being involved in Phil Kessel trade rumors, should really be looking at a solid rebuild, and should be trading some of their veterans in order to acquire higher picks. They also acquire a decently young backup goalie who could probably fetch decent value at the 2019 trade deadline.
- Toronto acquires their true top pairing shutdown dman. Muzzins older than most of Toronto’s team, but he provides excellent shutdown prowess, and a solid veteran presence. Muzzin is not necessarily a household name, but he's a solid, veteran dman who would improve Toronto vastly.

(Basically, Gardiner + Bracco + Pickard + #25 for Muzzin + Benning; imo, that's not too far off, Gardiner [w. extension] + #25 gets Muzzin, Bracco and Pickard gets Benning)

Free Agency:
Austin Czarnik - 1.5 Million x 3 Years
Michael Kempny - 2.2 Million x 2 Years
Patrick Maroon - 3.0 Million x 1 Year

Resigning:
William Nylander - 6.0 Million x 7 Years
Andreas Johnsson - 2.25 Million x 4 Years

Lineup:
Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews - William Nylander
Patrick Marleau - Nazem Kadri - Mitchell Marner
Andreas Johnsson - Austin Czarnik - Kasperi Kapanen
Patrick Maroon - Par Lindholm - Connor Brown

Jake Muzzin - Nikita Zaitsev
Morgan Rielly - Matt Benning
Ron Hainsey/ Michael Kempny - Travis Dermott

Frederik Andersen
Garrett Sparks.

Edm doesn't need another LEFT handed D man. Come on people. Nurse. Klefbom. Russell. Sekera. Now Gardiner? And Matt Benning isn't good enough for your second pairing.
Oilers aren't giving you 10th overall for leftie Gardiner. Sorry.


2.) 03 Jun 2018 12:36:19
I would just rather trade it for Muzzin than Gardiner. Lol.


3.) 03 Jun 2018 13:09:34
@Yup
I see where your coming from, but a lot of articles that I’ve read, at least for Toronto, aaid that although a #1 RHD is a priority, a #1 d in general is a priority, albeit RHD or LHD. because you can try and play people off-hand. Should be the same with Edmonton, a 1 offensive dman should be their number 1 priority, because a #1 RHD offensive dman limits the amount of players, and often, you’d find RHD worth more simply because of this. I’m pretty sure you can get players to play offhand and it won't be too bad tbh, but idk.

But Gardiner and 25 for 10 isn't that bad, is it?


4.) 03 Jun 2018 13:37:03
I’d rather keep the 10th overall rather then trade it for Muzzin. Also I agree with yup on this one Edmonton is pretty stacked with LHD although he’d instantly become their top pp dman. Gardiner would be on the Bottom pairing with sheltered offensive zone starts.

Straight-Up Hockey Trade:

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (6.0 Million x 3 Years) to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Jeff Skinner (5.725 Million x 1 Year; Extension - 6.25 Million x 5 Years)

Carolina gets their #1 centreman, who may flourish alongside two true scoring wingers in Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen. He's not blocked by McDavud and Drais at his natural position.

Edmonton gets their #1 wingman, who will flourish alongside McDavid, and could easily become a 40+ goal scorer.

So I’m aware you’ve probs seen this trade posted many times. However, no from Edmonton. Mcdavid and Nuge looked great at the end of the season and were the top duo team canada had at the worlds. Nuge is playing great on the wing and he’s starting to be more offensive and shooting more. Exactly what he needs to do. Also, keeping him gives Edmonton a great option for center if an injury occurs. Not to mention how he’s improved his 2 way game. No from oil.


2.) 02 Jun 2018 11:39:37
Keep Nuge with McDavid.
Trade for skinner another way, To play with Draisitl.

Wowza this is all over the place.

No from Oilers on trade number one, Drais >>> Gallagher, and honestly, Montreal seems set on Kotkaniemi, so dropping to 10 won’t affect then that much. Drais>>#3 overall anyway, and even if Gallagher= 10, the other spare parts won't make up the difference. And Sekeras negative value doesn't make up the difference either. Big no from Oil.

Second trade is laughable from Buffalo. That package doesn’t even land one of ROR or Risto, and you want both? c'mon man. Lucic basically cancels out Yamamoto, so Benning for two very good NHLers? Lol. Big, big, big no from Buffalo. that's like Moulson + Beaulieu + Guhle + 2nd for Larsson + RNH ++. Lol.

And Chimeras trash btw.

Yeahhhhhhhh Torornot doesnt.

We spent a lot of time building up this foundation. We aren't trading Nylander for ‘pieces’ were trading him for ‘one solid piece’: (dman; hamilton, hanifin, etc), whild adding a bit.

EVEN tho Habs want to draft Kotkaniemi, there will prob be a bidding war for 3, and its going to cost more than a #5 dman.

Zadina>Little next year, lmao.

Zadina's NHL ready. Zadina will be better than Little next yera. Zadina has 60-70 point capabilities. Little doesn't.

Boom. there's your explanation.

And don't tell me 'he isn't proven'. Laine, Matthews, Eichel, McDavid, Ekblad, all of them high picks flourished. Zadina could go #2 or #3, and he and Svech are basically identical talents, with different skillsets, but both are excellent talented players.

Both are better than Little. And will be next year. End of story.
